New Year's Eve 2017 Guide

This week is also dead, until New Year's, so here's our guide. Remember Metro is free New Year's Eve, because the city doesn't want to deal with your a$$ driving drunk on the holidays.

"To help you ring in the New Year safely, Metro will operate 24-hour, overnight service on Metro Rail, plus Orange and Silver Lines. Free rides will be offered for all bus and rail service from 9pm on December 31, 2016, until 2am on the morning of January 1, 2017.
All Metro Rail Line Stations with latched gates will be unlatched during this time. Regular fares are in effect after 2am on New Year's Day.
One-way fare is $1.75 and includes transfers to other Metro lines for up to two hours to complete a one-way trip.
Note: All Metro Rail lines and the Metro Orange Line will operate all night every 10-20 minutes on New Year's Eve. The Metro Silver Line will operate every 60 minutes during this time, following the same intervals on the late night schedule"
